Handling Pressure - Anusha Jain

Image
Anusha Jain, IX, Ahlcon Public School I am very fond of reading, and Harry Potter is my favourite series. Reflecting on Chapter 4, HandlingPressuree from the book Is Your Child Ready To Face The World? by Dr Anupam Sibal. HANDLING  PRESSURE   It’s no  pressure . It’s a responsibility we put it on ourselves -Abby Wambach     Wambach’s quote describes pressure in my life. My parents are very understanding and supportive. They never forced me to score good marks or burn myself for winning. But, I always tried to excel and made them proud. If I failed, which I did many times, I would get upset. I don’t remember that my parents ever hit or scolded me for not securing full marks. ‘‘Better luck next time!’’ they would say. For instance, even after working very hard, I had done terribly wrong in an exam. I cried and was disappointed. My mother gave me her comforting smile and encouraged me to try next time.  This has taught me that if we don’t put unnecessaPressure ure  on children, they will

Autobiography of a school bus - Rishona Chopra

Image
I am a bus. A school bus, to be precise. Unfortunately, I can not remember much. You see, I had gone through several surgeries, and that is why I don’t know much. Some think that I had gone through so many surgeries because of my carelessness. I assure you that my surgeries happened because of the selfish plans of some people. They wanted to make me beautiful and comfortable for them! They did not think about me at all. Now, you must be thinking, why didn’t I shout for help? I did call for help, but those selfish creatures did not listen to me. Before my surgery, I called … Van. Then I was called Bus and then finally I was called a school bus. Despite all the pain I went through, I like only one thing. I want to meet children. Many children come and sit on me, and I love talking to them. They hate wearing my friend Seatbelt, but what can I do? Those cute little faces bring a smile to my face. That is indeed the best part of my job. School Bus Rishona Chopra Grade V Gyanshree School

Courage - Vinki Srivastava

Image
Vinki Shrivastava, VI, Ahlcon Public School Courage is an innate superpower that lives inside us and that feeds on "I can and I will ". We are born out of courage. All throughout our lives, we are led to believe how certain things are made or work. People believe women are weak and vulnerable. Women also start thinking that they are soft and tolerate a lot. But one day, when a woman stands up for herself and says it loud and clear that 'No, I am not weak'. It's the hidden power of courage inside her, which wakes her up, and she believes that she can and she will. We all take birth, but we are born as humans the day we show courage to change the world. I like to read quotes of great leaders as it gives shape to my thoughts. I have fun playing games from Skating and Swimming to Hopscotch and Ludo as they are full of fun. I think little things in life give us the most joy. I also love learning about computer languages. Acting is my goal.

Determination - Anvesha Rana

Image
          "Victory is always possible for the person who refuses to stop fighting." Life is about success, failure and more success. The key to facing all of it is the determination to rise after one falls and start right from square one. We may receive awards or we may not, but definitely at some point in life we will receive failure and when we do, we all should remember to embrace it. Failure is not the opposite of success, it is a part of success. Only after you fail, you succeed and only after you succeed, you fail but what matters most is that you continue your quest of accomplishing your dreams. 50 years down the lane you will be more disappointed about the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do and when you start fulfilling your ambitions, you may even realize that life is too short for everything.  An ordinary person who demonstrated extraordinary determination was Steve Jobs. He dropped out of college and started Apple Computer, Inc. with Steve Wozniak

Specially Abled- Aanya Kumar

Image
Many people perceive disability if someone is - blind deaf handicap etc. But is this true? Obviously no! Many times, it has been proved that the disabled do amazing work, which probably an average person can't. One such example is  Linda Riveros. She is an amazing painter and paints using her legs, and she has been doing so since she was 7. Also, our current prime minister has titled them as 'specially abled'. I feel the same because even if a person is differently-abled, they are no less than average. Our values teach us to have mutual respect towards each other, and following the same will lead us to a better and more hopeful tomorrow. Aanya Kumar G yanshree School Grade 5

What do cows think? - Rishona Chopra

Image
Cows think about having lots of fun with their children. While delivering milk, their children are taken away from them, so they can't drink it as we selfish humans need it! Cows think about having lots of fun with their children without restrictions. They wish to dance and play with them like any parent.  Cows would love to have lots of food. Although they can eat little food for a longer time, they would like to have more if they don't get food to eat the other day! When people hit them to get milk, they obviously feel hurt and want to hit them back. They think about taking revenge on them and going out of the shed and being free, having freedom. We humans talk about having freedom, but we don't realize how we take others (animals) liberty away. Rishona Chopra Grade V Gyanshree School

Interview with an elephant - Rishona Chopra

Image
  Hi! Today I am going to be interviewing Ms Cloud. Let’s all welcome her with a round of applause. Mrs Cloud: Thank you, but just a small thing, my name is not Cloud. In fact, it’s Ms. Elephant. Interviewer: Oh! I am so sorry. So let us welcome Ms Elephant. So Ms Elephant, please tell us your journey to become a cloud. Mrs Elephant: I was an elephant at first. I was living my life happily. I loved to dance, and I still do, but then the poachers, those evil mindless creatures…killed me. I was a perfect soul, and as I entered heaven, I always had this divine light surrounding me, and you can see I still have that light. So I remain in the sky, which is heaven, but for humans, the sky and I keep roaming around there having fun without any poachers to disturb me. Interviewer: That is an interesting story, and those poachers who hurt you are indeed mindless creatures. Moving on to the next question, do you like being a cloud? Mrs Elephant: Oh yes! I love being there. I get to meet so many

Values - Rishona Chopra

Image
  Values - sounds familiar, right? We often hear people talking about them. They are some qualities that help us be a better person. Having one such value means having several values. Here are some of the examples of a few values in one value. C alm O pen-hearted O bedient P hilanthropic E ager R espectful A ffectionate T alented I deal O pen-minded N oble P eaceful A wesome T ruthful I maginative E arnest N eighbourly C areful E co - friendly Having all these values together is difficult, but here is a fact - we all are born with all these qualities! It’s just when we come into the real world and deal with all types of people with different views. Implementing these values becomes difficult. Although it is difficult, we must never give up implementing these values.  Value is just a 5 letter word, but it can change your entire life. Rishona Chopra Grade V Gyanshree School

A Destroyed World - Rishona Chopra

Image
What can destroy the world or what has destroyed the world? What could the answer be pollution, poaching, war or what? Wait, is it the Covid -19? No, it's none of them but the root cause for all of them…ego. Ego has a lot of pride, which leads to greed, selfishness, jealousy, and ultimately leads to anger. All these things whose root cause is ego can destroy the world. In fact, they have. Greediness leads to war, followed by destruction. Having greed also means being selfish. Just care about ourselves, and when we are selfish, we don't care about animals and nature and start polluting it. We think we are the most incredible creatures on Earth, and without us, nothing can live. We are so wrong. I would like to share a few lines from the poem "There Will Come Soft Rains" by Sara Teasdale. Not one will know of the war, not one Will care at last when it is done. Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree, If mankind perished utterly. These lines written by Sara Teasdale sa

War - Rishona Chopra

Image
War War causes nothing but destruction, It causes the same fear as a huge volcanic eruption, The only difference is that we can stop war, And create the world a bright star! Our ego leads to greed and selfishness, And that leads to evilness. If only we would understand, That what we claim for is just land! Ruling and having power isn't needed, Because that, for others, is being badly treated, We all are equal, And having equality is not illegal, Then why not stop war, And have a good happy year! "If war can be started by lies, it can be stopped by truth." Rishona Chopra Grade V Gyanshree School

Freedom- Tanishq Kaushik

Image
Every Citizens Duty to free India from clutches of Crimes and Negativity Freedom is the ability to think and do something without any constraint.  India got Freedom in 1947. Still, all of us are not entirely independent. Children, the future of our country, need Freedom. Child labour child trafficking exists in our country because poor people need money to eat and send their children to work even when it is a crime.  Child marriage robs girls of their childhood and threatens their lives and health. They can’t use their constitutional right to education and do not enjoy the flavour of Freedom.  Corruption is another hindrance to Freedom that exists in politics, private and public health, food, education, transport sectors. Even the legal system is not spared, diminishing trust in the law. I believe being honest to ourselves and creating awareness about education is the sole solution to attain Freedom.   About me-  Tanishq Kaushik, 7A, Ahlcon Public School.  I like reading books as it gi

Empathy - Anusha Jain

Image
Anusha Jain, IX-D, Ahlcon Public School I am very fond of reading, and Harry Potter is my favourite series. My Empathy Collage The highest form of knowledge is Empathy. It is seeing with the eyes of another, listening with the ears of another, feeling with the heart of another. Empathy is an action we take to benefit someone after keeping ourselves in someone else's shoes. It will help to shape a more civil society and a humane world.  The concept of Empathy is not limited to other humans. Empathy towards nature, our surroundings, our animals, and, most importantly, towards ourselves is essential. My collage below is all about my feelings and emotions related to Empathy .

Autobiography of socks - Rishona Chopra

Image
  I am a (sniffing) sock. You might think I have a cold as I sniff, and you are absolutely right. My job is to protect people from the cold, and I am so sincere with my job that I end up getting a cold myself. I have a wonderful uniform that has black and white patches on it and some sparkling glitter on it, so you can imagine how beautiful my uniform is! As I said, many people use me for keeping them protected from the cold. You must think I have an easy job, but I do not. People throw me into the washing machine when I get dirty, and that reckless creature throws water and foam on me!  You might not like the people who stay in the dirt, but you will be stunned to know that I love them. Why? Well, dirty people wear me for a more extended period, so I don’t have to go in the washing machine and get a fever! I really don’t want to make myself ill.  Sock Rishona Chopra Grade V Gyanshree School

A gift of Freedom - Bhavya Mahajan

Image
Bhavya Mahajan, 7A, Ahlcon Public School It was my birthday last week. But due to the pandemic, no one could come. So I thought of celebrating it differently by giving somebody a unique gift of Freedom. Before my birthday,  I purchased a caged parrot for thousand rupees. The parrot was charming and adorable. On my special day, I gave him food and released it. The moment I opened the door of the cage, the parrot flapped its wings and happily soared high, away in the sky. After doing this good deed, I felt elated and satisfied. However, when my little sister saw that the parrot had flown away, she started crying. I explained to her that birds are born to fly free, and no one should steal their Freedom from them. It is a sin to trap them in a cage. Through this incident, I learnt that giving Freedom to somebody is the best gift we can provide. My little sister nodded and smiled. I am an avid reader of mystery and fictional stories. I am fond of writing short stories, poems and articles to

E-waste - Aanya Kumar

Image
We all know that there is a lot of waste on this earth. We can have kitchen waste, waste paper or maybe some waste furniture which is broken or something. But, did you know that there is a waste known as E-waste? This type of waste is obtained from the gadgets that are broken. We tend to throw these gadgets than replace the parts that are damaged.  E-waste is harmful to our bodies. Although precious materials such as gold and platinum are stored, a few chemicals are toxic. Usually, kids are there for doing the necessary work, which affects their bodies tremendously. To save these children, let us decrease the discarding of gadgets. There are a few ways in which we do so- We can replace parts that are damaged. We can get it fixed and be ready to use it again. We should give it proper servicing. With these few easy techniques, we can reduce E-waste. Aanya Kumar Gyanshree School Grade 5

Never give up hope - Aanya Kumar

Image
We, as humans, have been given hope for innovation. As creatures on this planet, we have been given hope of survival. But, we tend to lose hope many times. Jodi Miller was diagnosed with seizures when she was only three years old.  The only cure for stopping this was removing half of her brain. Miller's parents could have given up... But they didn't. They chose to go to Dr Ben Carson. He made them understand that removing half of the brain has disadvantages, but it was the only solution. Miller's parents thought to not give hope and help their child in some way than letting her have paralysis or seizures either. Soon Miller was ready to start over again. Miller aced in school and became very successful. Just like Jodi's parents, we should not give up hope. Aanya Kumar Gyanshree Shree Grade 5

Be a Dreamer - Shambhavi Nautiyal

Image
Shambhavi Nautiyal, VII-D, Ahlcon Public School I am a keen story writer and reader. I try to learn as much as I can and remember those stories to rejuvenate myself and not lose hope in the end. I am a big fan of K-pop as the music soothes my soul and makes me feel effervescent. The 17th-century films helped me learn values and set my beliefs. Reflecting on Chapter 7, Be a Dreamer from the book Is Your Child Ready To Face The World? by Dr Anupam Sibal. I read the chapter ‘Be a Dreamer’ from the book ‘Is your Child Ready to Face the World?’ and it said that Dr Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream for his nation to be racially equal, and so I thought that I too must have a dream and ambition for my nation. Hence, I have come up with postulation of our country with an optimistic motive.  My dream for India in 2040 is that we would be free from illiteracy, poverty and unemployment. I hope we shall benefit from all the schemes and programmes our government has launched. The internationa

Self Confidence and Hope - Ananya Bhatia

Image
My Name is Ananya Bhatia. I study in Ahlcon Public school in class 9th. I like reading books. Self Confidence and Hope Self Confidence is an essential part of our life. Everyone has their own challenges and difficulties. Students, for example, are often compared with their friends, relatives, neighbours etc. This comparison is limited to academics and often extends to other fields like sports, public Speaking, Extra curriculum etc. In these situations, they really need self-confidence. They must also know that they are on the right path and should not give up hope. I feel that self-confidence and hope can co-relate. If we have the self-confidence to move on the right track, the results will also come, but only if we don’t give up hope. Another way around is if we give up hope, our self-confidence will fall. Thank you.

Never Give Up Hope - Anvesha Rana

Image
                                                             "Hope is the last thing ever lost." Life is a unique journey filled with twists and turns, preaching and learning, hardships and mirth but the thing that remains constant in life is that we keep moving forward. In order to remain balanced on a cycle it is essential to continue pedaling, but how do we move on if all our energy has been already drained ? How do we overcome problems and welcome a new phase ? Sometimes in life we may feel dejected, we may feel as if we have lost a battle but it is in these dark moments that the mind unravels, turns the pages and creates a new future all because of hope. There is no medicine or tonic as powerful as hope. Hope is trust mixed with love and faith, along with belief. Hope can make someone live again, it can teach someone to smile again and it can inspire someone to be good again.  Our history is a witness of people who demonstrated extraordinary hope. Professor Stephen Hawki

Life - Rishona Chopra

Life Life is a dream, It flows as fast as a stream. We must decide our aim,  Life is like a game. You shall face obstacles, But you have to be the constable, Face your struggles like a warrior, Who wants to cross the barrier. Just have a little courage, And never be discouraged. Have hope, And you’ll be able to climb life’s tough slope! Rishona Chopra Grade V Gyanshree School

Never Give Up Hope - Rishona Chopra

Image
  Based on the reading of the chapter Never Give Up hope from Dr Anupam Sibal's book Is Your Child Ready To Face The World? As told in the previous chapter,' Making Others Happy' is the biggest key to 'hope'. We all should have hope, especially in tough times. Having hope means that it isn't the end. Whenever we are in a tough spot, we should think of possibilities instead of having negative thoughts and thinking of good options is having hope, and we should never give up hope.  Having lost hope is like giving up on a complicated thing that could change the world.  " Hope is the one thing that can help us get through the darkest of times." Rishona Chopra Grade V Gyanshree School

Freedom - Aayan Biswas

Image
Aayan Biswas, VI-B, Ahlcon Public School I have a hobby of reading books on fiction and mystical lands. I write stories and poems as I find writing the best way to express my feelings and tell people what I think. I really enjoy writing and reading as it is delightful.   Freedom He committed a crime and had paid a fine, I went to jail and waited for bail. He drove cars and ate a chocolate bar, I trotted all day; even my birthday passed away. He ate burgers and French fries, I had eaten some bread and plain rice. He had friends and family, While I had no one beside me. Framed me for a crime that he had done, They didn’t let me say a word, not even one! As I rotted in a black box, He went hiking and climbed rocks. I had soon lost all hope and might, My life was all black and not a spot of white. Suddenly, I saw a beautiful sight. Justice was served, right and well, I was freed, and he was confined. Everything had changed after such a long time, It fe

Patience - Rishona Chopra

Image
Patience it's just a word, right? It simply means to wait without being annoyed. That's easy. But then imagine you waiting for a printout for your school project, and the printer just isn't working! That is so annoying! You keep getting annoyed, and instead of waiting till the paper comes out, you keep restarting it again and again. If you do that, the printer would be annoyed too and would ultimately stop working or work even slower.  On the other hand, if you wait patiently for the paper to come out, then it could. Although having patience is annoying, it is necessary as you might get into a fight with someone too! Like you got a battle with the printer in the above example.  For me, having patience is a bit difficult. Like when I complete something in class that the other students have not finished yet. It is a little difficult to wait for others to complete it. But I am working on that. Patience is a bit difficult but necessary! Rishona Chopra Grade V Gyanshree School

Making others Happy - Shirin Kaw

Image
Shirin Kaw, 8E, Ahlcon Public School I am very passionate about writing stories and poems of what I imagine. Writing various stories and poems helps me express my thoughts on a piece of paper. It gives me a sense of calmness to my body and allows me to spend my free time productively. I also read many stories; I mainly enjoy fictional stories as I love imagination and creativity. Making Others Happy - Feeling good after doing a good deed, Making one smile, the beatitude I perceive Sunshine thrives over all the obstacles I face  A second doesn't go by without thinking that face.  It must have been a rough day, dealing with the strain  A soul comes and hugs you,  Makes your day an enchanting bouquet.  Take a minute of your life, There is something to redo,  Make someone blush, and don't forget yourself too.

Never Giving Up Hope - Yashraj Sharma

Image
“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope”. - Martin Luther King Jr. Hope. What is hope? How should we not lose hope? Why are we told to never give up hope? The answer is simple: hope is a feeling or a presence of mind in which you are still firm in doing a task despite constant failures. If we have hope, the sense of continuous determination stays alive.  For example- If, unfortunately, a person gets infected by an illness, they should not lose hope because, as per psychological research, when a patient is given medicine, if they have a gloomy and negative mindset, the therapy is less likely to be effective than it is supposed to. Hope keeps us optimistic and gives us the willpower to do our best even in hard times, and also, if we are full of hope, it helps us remain committed to our work and our goals and motivated to take action towards achieving. Hope gives people to be consistent in their work with zeal and enthusiasm. So, in the end, I would like to s

Autobiography of a jacket: Part Two - Rishona Chopra

Image
 In the previous part, we read about Jacket, who has gone through surgery and his friend Coat, who has gone on a journey to find true happiness. I, Coat, am now in the Himalayas, near Mount Everest. I am feeling freezing. Luckily I have worn a few layers, but it is still freezing! I think,' where am I now? I was fine, okay with a jacket and my owners. This place is so cold! I've been through a desert, where it was very scorching, had to tear my skin and now this freezing place!' As you can see, I am very annoyed and am considering going back to my home with Jacket, and he might feel much happier then. It takes quite a few months to reach home, but what can I do if I stop? I have nothing to do and have no protection either. But somehow, I manage to get there.  When Jacket sees me, he is over the moon with joy. He asks me questions about my journey. After staying in front of the heater, I answered all his questions about how tiring my trip was.  I realized that I can't fi

Positivity - Rishona Chopra

Image
If you reflect on your day and think how many times you think the answer would surely be ' many times but then when you think how many times you had positive thoughts the answer would be ' a few times. But the question is why have positivity? How can it affect us? Firstly, what we think is what we do and as we do the consequences are equal and if that then it is most likely to happen than what we think comes true. But that might not sound like something you would actually believe in so let us take a look at it in another way: Imagine you wishing that you would pass your exam but thinking you never can. Now, when you think that you never can pass your exam then you don't try harder, you have lost hope and when that is then you are sure to fail even when you could pass. Even if you worked very hard but thought that you will never pass then you could fail too. On the other hand, if you worked hard and also thought that you can pass the exam then you could pass! So working hard
